Hi I'm Brendon Black

Missionary. Redhead. Music. Jesus Christ. Wide smiles. Totally insane. Mormon.

About Me

Hmmm...I'm insane. I love music, more than breathing and eating. I love eating, it's one of my favorite hobbies. Food is the best. I love going to shows and listening to my favorite bands. I love the environment, and being around people just like me, especially with so many friends around! I'm the life of the party, and the pit boss, and I enjoy instigating fun and mayhem. I love motorcycles. I love the Gospel, and I'm currently serving in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission, THE best mission in the world! Serving from March '14 to March '16.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love the Lord! This is His church, and His gospel, and I feel a need to live it every single day. I know my Heavenly Father loves me, and I know He has a plan for me, and I intend to live it as righteously as possible so I can see those blessings in my life every day. I'm a "3rd generation" Mormon because my Grandma was found by some missionaries a few decades ago, and she read Alma 32:28 and felt the Spirit testify to her that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true, and now my entire family is a part of the Church. I have a sincere desire to help everyone around me, and I just love bearing the name of Christ! Most of all, I'm a Mormon because I know that it's all true. He's shown me that it's true, time and time again, especially on my mission.

How I live my faith

Right now, I live my faith by teaching it to those that want to hear it. Virginia is full of curious people who are willing to hear the gospel, and it's my mission to find them and share the truth with them! I live my faith by being an example of it to others, friends and family alike. I live my faith by doing my best to be like Christ every single day. I'm always asking Him for help, because I really can't do anything without Him. He's my best, best friend. I love the Savior! He's really is the greatest, and can help anyone through anything.
